Scarface’s Deeply Rooted is less than 48 hours away from release. However, the Houston, Texas lyrical legend offers the album’s most anticipated song. “Do What I Do” extends a rich tradition in ‘Face’s collaborative history with Nas. From 1999’s “Favor For A Favor,” 2002’s “In Between Us,” 2012’s “Hip Hop,” among others, the chemistry between Brad Jordan and Nasir Jones may rival any cross-country tandem in Hip-Hop.


The song, with a soulful beat built around pounding drums, reveals why Nas, Z-Ro, and Rick Ross are all ghetto boys, influenced by the Geto Boys. Scarface takes the lead with his driving vocals going back in his bag of images, and taking listeners to the purpose and place where it all started. Z-Ro, who joins Scarface as a Rap-A-Lot Records alum, takes on the chorus, enhancing the song’s melodic nature.
